A new Shabby Christmas House....

I found these cute little houses at my local crafts store. I can not get my fav's that I just sold out of, so was looking for a way to make my own. I may still try to lite them too. They are smaller & of course my 'look'.

I painted them, added roses, of course!! under the windows & then covered in glitter. Then put them out on my Cake Stand & added a little snow.

I may try to add these to my shop next year & make more, but wanted to see if there was any interest.

Thanks for looking. I need to do a whole lot more decorating, but this is a start!! I want to add glitter to the snow too, for extra glitzzzz

Happy Decorating everyone!!

Our new Beautiful Shabby Piece!!

So since the fireplace, that I am enjoying ohh soo much, the rest of the room needed a few tweeks. We got a new flat screen for the wall, (finally!!) & needed a piece to put the components in. So I went to my local Gararge sale- warehouse place & found this!!!!!

It was a mess! Filthy & pelling finish, & not even one color. My husband thought I was nuts!! It is 6 feet long & carved to the shabby top, its wonderful.

Ohh did I mention I paid $48!!!! & they delivered & took my old ugly huge heavy 36" tv. I still can't believe that is all I spent!!

So I got it home after working all day, had a terrible headache, but just HAD to paint it white!!

Today my husband put the cable box & stuff in the middle section & we put the village on top.

Here it is painted, let me know what you think..... :o)
I haven't finished painting it yet, but too much to do before christmas. Its in the room & painted & I love it!!!

Our New Fireplace

Our early Christmas Present!
Shabby, electric & wonderful, I adore this fireplace. I have wanted one since we bought this house. It is the perfect fit for our little French Shabby home

Sammy likes it too!! Poseing for a picture! Best part is, it stays cool to the touch so she can't get hurt. There is a heating element for cold nites, but I just love to watch the fire burn. Can't wait to put our Hand made Stockings hanging..... I will post pics of that too!
Happy Holiday decorating!!!

NEW Holiday & Christmas Web Designs

I have been busy making up Christmas Web Designs & Toppers ro be used to decorate your Web Designs! The Toppers can be installed as your Main Web Header & then the rest stays as is.
Any of these designs can be made into a full design for an additional charge.

I tried to make something for everyone.... I have more designs coming out soon....

Here is a Victorian Lady all dressed in her beautiful Red Christmas Coat & Hat with Holly.

Here is a Shabby Winter Angel, Dressing in Winter White & Pink with Roses & Lace. All things shabby & wonderful!

I love this vintage victorian Santa image! He is perfect to coordinate with a blue web design. Touches of gold & of course, Roses!!

We decorate our Homes & Deck the Halls, why not our "shops"??

If I had a stone & morter shop, it would be decked out for the Holidays & you can bet my Web Store will be this year too!!

Our Summer Fun, so far.....

I have been all about business lately on my blog, sorry about that!!
Living on Long Island, we are only about 15 minutes from the beach & I have been taking the kids & they love it!!! My son is 4 & such a little engineer, makes castles, looks for shells. My daughter is almost 17 months & loves to just dig & feel the sand between her little chubby toes & fingers.

Sam was too young last year & we didn't get to the beach much. Not so this year!! I should have some tan by August Ha ha ha
